Dancing With the Stars runner-up Joey Fatone has a new TV gig: host of NBC’s upcoming karaoke-themed game show.

The Singing Bee is due to debut at 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10, following America’s Got Talent, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Fatone was known on Dancing for his often comedic routines and upbeat personality. Even after coming in second to Olympian Apolo Anton Ohno, Fatone said: “I feel like a winner”

Not that the ‘N Sync-er, 30, will have the karaoke field clear to himself. On July 9, FOX will also launch its own sing-along game show, Don’t Forget the Lyrics, to be hosted by Wayne Brady.

Fatone’s version will feature contestants attempting to belt out lyrics to the most popular songs of all time.
